How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Des Moines

  • Security personnel will expect to see your travel ID and boarding pass upon arrival. Put them in a convenient place, so they're all ready for inspection.
  • Belts, coins and power banks are to be placed in a tray for X-raying. If you pass through the body scanner with these items, you'll be instructed to turn back and remove them.
  • Laptops, tablets and other electronic devices must be placed in separate bins to be X-rayed.
  • Toothpaste, deodorant and other toiletry items in liquid, gel or cream form need to be stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock plastic bag.
  • Give some thought to your choice of footwear. Slippers are great because they're a cinch to slip out of for the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next journey!
  • Multi-tools and corkscrews are not allowed on board the aircraft. Tuck them away in your checked luggage to avoid forfeiting them at the airport security checkpoint.
